- Medium – https://leetcode.com/problems/maximal-square/
- Hard – Given some points in the form (x, y) and a value x, find the y corresponding to x using a few conditions given in the question. Basically Had to use lower bound and upper bound concepts.
I was able to do easy and both medium (all the Test Cases passed) and partial test cases of Hard Questions.
A lot of Students applied and finally, 25 students were selected for Interviews, I was one of them.
Round-1(Technical Interview): Began with introductions and a coding question- https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/count-words-in-a-given-string/ and one more that was also basic question on stack. Then he asked me about my projects and detailed discussion on technologies I have used.
